What is holistic medicine for pets?

Treatment Alternatives

Holistic or homeopathic medicine is growing as an alternative treatment for many pet ailments, including even some minor pet surgery. Holistic medicine includes vitamin supplements, natural foods, and herbal remedies as part of the healing process.

Holistic medicine is popular in preventing certain types of cancer and other common illnesses. However, most pet health plans do not cover holistic medicine at this time.

If you want to treat your pet with this type of medical treatment, you should check with your pet health plan company to find out if they cover holistic treatments and supplements. If not, a pet HMO might work better for your particular needs.
